Just delete .config and .support in folder "/Library/Application Support/Paragon Software/"
then you will get an another 10 days trial.
Paragon NTFS for Mac version 15.0.911 test succeed.

I just spent ~2 hrs removing all traces of Paragon's ExtFS driver. It cause my Mac to crash completely (black screen, fatal error reboot msg), so I wanted to scrub all traces of this nasty software.... All of the above is pretty good, but here are some other notes:

There is also a folder in /Library/Application Support and a .plist in ~/Library/Preferences. It also attaches itself to LaunchServices, which causes constant errors in /var/log/system.log as it can't find the binaries anymore. In my case, the binaries were apparently deleted by the Paragon installer automatically and that possibly caused a kernel panic.

You may also have to rebuild LaunchServices to get rid of it entirely. See https://www.cnet.com/news/how-to-clear-custom-application-associations-in-os-x/ (warning - there is sometimes an annoying auto-play video on that page, but it's the best explanation I've found... ) for a few ways of doing it - I had to rebuild and also delete the LaunchServices.plist. Also, don't forget to empty your trash if you drag/drop stuff to it.

Thankyou, that saved me a bunch of time.
You can substitute ExtFS instead of NTFS as appropriate.
